Style Inspiration: 1940s

"With the onset of World War II rationing in the 1940's extended to clothing too. Fabric was scarce, so skirts were perpendicular, and blouses were plain, without ruffles or detailing. Lots of women kept their clothes to one shade, so that they could mix and match pieces and get more use out of each item. Colors had dark, pure hues. Wear just a single "statement piece" at one time so that they do not contend with one another."
